are people who often base themselves on the wrong-headed view of religion, extreme, narrow-minded and so on. and you see it play out in libya with the tragic death of your ambassador there, it play out in egypt, yemen, syria, iraq. afghanistan, pakistan. this is a battle going on in which i think what we have to do is be there on the side of the modern minded sensible people. it's going to be a very tough struggle in the meantime. >> how much about the way we look at these countries is colored by the last decade of experience in afghanistan and iraq. here in america and great britain, their civilians have been killed in these wars, we don't have the stomach to put our men and women in harm's way. do you think that colors the way president obama views these decisio decisions? >> well, it's always better to have a coalition together. but i think what's happening which is different now in the past couple of years from the previous ten is that we interveinte interve intervened, and so on. this time, it is -- these uprisings are coming from the street. these oppressive regimes are being cast off

. and basically, he makes the case that mormanism is, in fact, the quintessential american religion. mormanism is all about america being the promised land. and jon finds it a little curious that governor romney doesn't talk about that more because in a sense, mormanism is about american exceptionalism. and the fact that governor romney doesn't incorporate that in his whole argument is a curious thing. and the other thing that he says about mormanism is that it's a religion of trial and tribulation and escaping prejudice and being under the gun. and, in fact, that also is animating mitt's campaign because he's kind of trying to sail steady in the face of all of this turbulence. >> it's a perfect -- it's not actually curious at all. there's a very clear reason why he doesn't talk about it. and it reflects the innate caution of their campaign. they've been worried all along about base voters, evangelical voters and not turning out for him. they've been concerned about that from day one. you could criticize that caution. i would criticize that caution, but that's the reason why he doesn't talk ab

as it should be. host: does religion played a part in virginia voters? guest: absolutely. in virginia, like in many states, you see a clear link between the level of religiosity, the frequency of religious attendance, whether it is 8 synagogue or a christian or catholic church -- what you see is the more frequently people participate in religious activities, the more likely they are to vote republican. particularly evangelical christian communities, which tend to be more organized in rural parts of the state, very aggressive efforts to connect with fellow members of accommodation to bring out more people for mitt romney. this is the key part of the advantage that republicans have in many parts of the south. it is the presence of organized, religiously oriented political activity. for gin is the home state of the jerry falwell and pat robinson -- virginia is the home state of jerry falwell and pat robertson. what you see in northern virginia, in less religiously oriented part of the state, is that jerry falwell and pat robertson have little impact, perhaps only in a negative wait for many vo

old, mr. melendez. what he did was a serious felony crime and he created a baby, my client is religion, she raised the child because it is h her belief that the child shouldn't suffer and now here is a guy who has had absolutely nothing to do with this child from birth suddenly has an urge to visit only because he is suddenly being made to pay. my beef with the judge is had the judge punished him in the criminal case by ordering restitution instead of sending him off to family court where he was rewarded with the privilege of fatherhood the guy would be paying restitution for his criminal behavior maybe in the form of an amount of money roughly equal to that which he might have been ordered to pay in family court but it would be a criminal punishment and wouldn't come attached to the presumptive privilege of fatherhood. >> shannon: there are two different situations here. the criminal judge. the criminal case. the rape case. he then sent the admitted rapist over to family court saying tamly court, probate court is where they decide with whether or not you can visit the child and what r

the muslim religion for them, but it is not for us. and they expect us to end our first amendment -- s, can notrican,s c accept that they have their culture and we have ours. we stand for freedom, rights, i don't think that you should back off of those for one moment. we support israel that has their values as well as ours. there is a very different set of police. it is just imposed upon them by political and religious leadership. >> iran. before we get to that, i want to talk about the 1980 presidential election because you were involved with that one as well. and there might be a parallel here that we can discuss. historically, an american presidential elections, 50% of jews to vote for the democratic party. and president carter, the each got 40%. congressman anderson got 20%. those numbers were just historic. it may or may not have influenced the race, but it had a post camp david ethos. yet another un resolution where they passed a resolution saying that jerusalem was occupied. and the occupation of jerusalem, that issue was not strongly preventing that. >> he directed the un delegates

repression as they exercise their rights, that they have universal rights of freedom of speech, religion, freedom of association, freedom of access to information, and that governments in the region had a responsibility to move towards political and economic reform because it was clear in the context of the arab spring that it was the only way towards long-term stability. at the same time, i think the president recognized -- and this is something that doug mentioned -- that there was not a one size fits all policy for each of these countries and that each country had to be taken on its own, so our policy towards tunisia and libya and egypt and yemen and syria and elsewhere had to be modified based on the situation on the ground and also an understanding of how best to promote reform while preserving american interests in this vital part of the world. i think it's, i think it's important that the president never suggested, nor i don't think has anybody who's ever study l -- studied democratization that this would be an instantaneous change, instantly become this kind of "kumbaya", freedom
